I had my first conversation with one of the screenwriting coaches I wanted to meet with and I found myself saying things that I didn’t expect.
For as positive as I want to be, being honest with myself about my goals, my hopes, and my fears, left me feeling a bit unnerved. Until recently, I had been afraid to chase my dream, but now I’ve done a 180 and don’t want to waste any more time. After saying this phrase a few times, Lucy, my potential new coach, said I hadn’t been wasting time but living my life.
If only she knew.
If the state of the world is any indication at how precarious it all is, then we need to take advantage of the moment.
We have to silence the inner demons, squash the dark side of ourselves, and believe we are capable of achieving whatever goals we have set. I always think, there are so many people doing what I want, so why can’t I? They stepped up. They believed in themselves. It’s time I did the same.
Finish the project. Get it out into the world. See what happens. And no matter the result…try again. Repeat until desired result achieved. 😉
